Anshu Jamsenpa, a mother of two children, created a mountaineering record by climbing and unfurling the national tri-colour on Mt. Everest on May 12, 2011 and again on May 21, 2011. She is the first mother in the world to summit the world's highest peak twice in a span of just 10 days.
Being an adventurer from a remote North East India, she has been a strong propellant of adventure sports and adventure tourism in the region. She has advocated for early commissioning of National Institute of Mountaineering & Allied Sports (NIMAS) which is coming up at Dirang in Arunachal Pradesh. She has also taken up the issue of opening the virgin Arunachal peaks like Mt. Kangto 7090 mtr. Mt. Nyegi Kangsang 7050 mtr. Mt Gorichen 6488 mtr. etc for mountain climbing & expeditions. In this regard she has already met and appraised the Defence Minister A K Anthony on 4th July’11, Union Minister of Development of North East Region B K Handique on 30th June’11 and Director IMF Col J P Bhagtjee (Retd) on 2nd July’11.
Anshu Jamsenpa is keen on starting an Adventure Institute in Arunachal Pradesh; fully devoted to the development of Adventure Sports and Adventure Tourism. She is also planning to train students and youths in mountaineering and other adventurous activities so that this little known North East region can come at par with the other developed states of India in the field of adventurous activities. She wants to tap the vast potential that NE region offers for the benefit of present and future generation.
The Everest Again project looks forward to raise a total of Rs 35 lakhs from Government, sponsorships and crowd funding. As and when the amount so collected exceeds Rs. 35 lakhs, then a major part of the excess would be provided to Baruah Cancer Centre, Guwahati to screen women for breast cancer in North East region and some part would be spared for establishing an Adventure Sports Academy.
